Voice Acting For Fun And Profit

Audiences thrill to the animated characters in a pile of recent movies... often without any idea of what the people who provide the voices for the characters look like. 

Sure, plenty of big-time movie stars provide the voices, but there are plenty of people whose bread-and-butter involves acting without a camera. 

Serena Travis is one of these--she lives in Northern California's Scott Valley; fellow voice actor Melissa Disney (distant relation to Walt) is also in the biz.  They join us by phone (naturally) to talk about life behind the microphone.
